Crossing State Lines


sweater: c/o Amavo Boutique -  NYC tee: F21  -  rhinestone necklace: JCrew  -  Ohio dainty necklace: c/o Midwest Charm -  shoes: Nasty Gal  -  legwarmers: c/o Vanity  -  glasses: Aldo

I loved being able to cross state lines today with this tee/necklace combo. Being a midwest girl to the core, I instantly fell in love with Midwest Charm's adorably dainty Ohio charm necklace. When it arrived and I debated what to wear it with, but I kept gravitating toward this NYC tee. There was just something so invigorating about pairing the two states together that felt right... it was as if I was setting the two on a blind date or something! All in all,  I guess I proved the phrase to be true: You can take the girl out of Ohio but you can't take the Ohio out of the girl.

Amavo Amore

sweater: Amavo Boutique  -  shirt: Express  -  shoes: Dolce Vita  -  purse: Zara

October is upon us and with that I'm officially ready to accept the fact that it's now sweater weather. The seasonal transition was really made easy this year thanks to Amavo Boutique and this amazing tie dye cardigan. The perfect mix of boho and chic, this sweater address the need for the quintessential fall sweater staple, which is why over the next three posts I'm going to be highlighting all the different ways you can rock this piece-- and if you'd like to try yourself (and join in the fun) you can with 15% off using the code "catwalk15"  to get this cardigan or 15% off anything on the site!

For the first post of the triad of posts I wanted to highlight the easiest way to wear this cardigan which is setting it back to black. By letting the cardigan act as the conversation piece of your outfit you won't take away from it's detail and you'll keep the look refined. I do suggest, however, to add in an additional level of interest with your accessories-- here is where you can add in a color pop if you'd like! Since I wore this gem on a day where I was running around town going to vendor appointments I kept it classic, but don't be afraid to have some fun.

Treasure Found

shirt: Rachel Roy (solid version similar here) -  skirt: Capelli  -  sunnies: Aldo  -  shoes: Steve Madden  -  tote: Zara

This weekend was full of awesomeness. Yesterday was spent soaking up the last rays of summer at the Global Citizens Festival where we jammed out to the likes of No Doubt, Fun, Jay Z and a surprise guest... BEYONCE! I've always found her fascinating but I now fully understand the allure after seeing her live. She flawless and so fierce. Am I girl crushing right now? Umm yup. Then today was spent in a more chill way as I enjoyed the lovely streets of Brooklyn as a few of us toured the Dumbo Arts Festival. The photos above are from the festival, but I'm sad to say that I prematurely snapped the palm reading sign before I was able to sit down (the line was too damn long for a hot day). But I have to say that regardless of the line, the thought of getting my palms read scares the heck out of me. I know some people say it's all made up and there's nothing to fear, but what if they aren't making it up? It's terrifying to me because (assuming that since you're born with the lines on your palms and you can't do anything to change them) the idea that somebody can read the lines and tell you something about you means that in a way your life's story has already been written... and I like to think that I'm writing my own story each and every day.
